Tax System of Estonia in 2018: What Has changed?

Published: Dmitriy Batrakov | 27/03/2018 | blog

In 2018, Estonia’s taxation system has been subjected to a number of changes. Here are the most significant of them: A considerable leap in the registration threshold as a payer of sales tax from EUR 16,000 to EUR 40,000. Reduction of the tax benefit on regularly paid dividends from 20% to 14%. For the first time, a reduced rate can be applied for dividend payments in the next year, taking into account that in 2018, the corresponding tax was levied at a rate of 20%. The benefit does not apply to the dividends received and already taxed. It also does not apply to the loans that are taxed as a hidden profit distribution. In 2019, the dividend amount will be taxed at a reduced rate, corresponding to one third of the dividends paid in the previous year. In 2020, this benefit will be applicable to the amount of dividends corresponding to one third of the dividends paid in 2019-2020, and in 2021 - to the amount equivalent to the average value of the dividends paid for the previous three years.

Published: Olena Kamenetska | 10/01/2018 | news

From 1 September 2018, all Estonian undertakings must disclose data on their beneficial owners in the commercial register. Therefore, name, date of birth, habitual residence and position occupied by the beneficial owner are subject to disclosure. The obligation to provide these data to the register lies with management board of the company. According to the law, a beneficial owner is defined as a natural person who, by using his influence, performs an operation or a transaction or who exercises control over a transaction, operation or another person in whose interests or on whose account a transaction or operation is performed. A beneficial owner is also a natural person who ultimately owns or controls more than 25% of the shares in the undertaking. In case if the company has failed to identify the beneficial owner and “all possible identification measures” have been exhausted, a member of the highest management board must be represented as the beneficial owner. In addition, there must be no doubt that such a person does not exist. Data on the beneficial owner must be submitted to the commercial register during company formation procedures.

Corporate tax in Estonia

Estonia is the most competitive tax system in the world, largely thanks to its 20-percent income tax and a "well-structured" personal income tax system. The third annual International Competitiveness Fund measures how well the country's tax system contributes to sustainable economic growth and investment. The report looks at 40 variables of tax policy in five categories, including corporate income taxes, individual taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes, as well as the treatment of foreign exchange earnings. According to the Fund, Estonia's position at the beginning of 2016 the list of the year is mainly the result of four factors, including "its low percentage of corporate tax, well-structured, 20 percent tax rate on personal income tax, property tax is only applied to the cost of land, rather than the real value of the property or capital, as well as a well thought out territorial tax system." New Zealand and Latvia take the next two places in the list. In contrast, France is at the end of the table due to its high corporate rate - 33.33 per cent of the taxes, "high and poorly structured" property taxes, and "progressively higher individual tax rates." The United States...
